    This is unbelievable! Theocratic warfare with the courts?

    Elder states that JW's do NOT shun: (Listen to his weak definition of shunning)

    Elder lies about the custody packet:

  • MrFreeze

    I actually just came across this on youtube. It's pretty awful. Shunning is one of the worst teachings ever. It totally destroys the natural love of a parent and their child.

    Apparently the brother is not aware that does indeed use the word "shunning" in an article about, er, shunning.

    If I am not mistaken, this very farce happened at the custody hearing of our own "alamb".

    Don't you want to reach into the screen and sucker punch the Mfer?

    What a lying, steaming pile of $hit this a-hole is. First of all denying that shunning occurs in families with DFed relatives, then denying knowing of a custody packet. He should be denying he's sane at the same time. Infuriating . Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    Apparently he felt the following applied ....

    *** w09 6/15 p. 17 pars. 6-7 Speak Truth With Your Neighbor ***

    Does being truthful with others mean that we must disclose every detail to whoever asks us a question? Not necessarily. While on earth, Jesus demonstrated that some people are undeserving of a direct answer or of certain information. When hypocritical religious leaders asked him by what power or authority he performed signs and miracles, Jesus said: “I will ask you one question. You answer me, and I will also tell you by what authority I do these things.” When the scribes and older men were unwilling to give an answer, Jesus said: “Neither am I telling you by what authority I do these things.” (Mark 11:27-33) He did not feel obligated to answer the question in view of their corrupt practices and faithless example. (Matt. 12:10-13; 23:27, 28) Similarly today, Jehovah’s people need to be on guard against apostates and other wicked men who use trickery or cunning for selfish purposes.—Matt. 10:16; Eph. 4:14.

    Paul likewise indicated that some people may not be entitled to receive a full or complete answer. He said that “gossipers and meddlers in other people’s affairs” are “talking of things they ought not.” (1 Tim. 5:13) Yes, those who pry into the affairs of others or those who cannot be trusted to keep a confidence may find that others are reluctant to share personal information with them.
